On 21st January 2019 it was the annual Martin Luther King day around the world.I woke up unusually early to make my way for my 1st day at Cavendish University in Kampala,Uganda as a Law student.It was raining hard at about 6am but I was determined to get there.Many thoughts were running through my head,fears and anxiety but I was strengthened reminding myself of the great sacrifices that Dr.MLK endured for the 'mountain top' glory he had seen.
For over a year now I have wrestled with the idea of going back to school for a Law Degree.Even today everything around me is screaming Nooo,not now,no money,how about your family,no time,next year etc.Dr.MLK said "The time is always right to do what is right."
The conviction for 'why law school' and the example of such men as Dr.MLK has outweighed all my fears. He said "Be a bush if you can't be a tree. If you can't be a highway, just be a trail. If you can't be a sun, be a star. For it isn't by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.”
I want to be that tree,that trail,that star and the very best of who I am in the slums where impoverished children are screaming for justice,and in the board rooms where global decisions are being made.In the war torn zones where women are being raped and in the streets where justice is flourishing.
For the last 15 years i have dedicated my life to serving the children of Uganda through orphanages,through feeding,education,and health programs.
There is more work to be done in advocacy and I believe this law degree will equip me.I need your help to get there.My tuition per semester is $1,000 and I also need a motorcycle ($1,000) to help me get in class on time.
